Chicken Lentil Salsa Soup

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014

Exciting News! I will be taking part in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year!  I signed up today to send a dozen cookies to three other bloggers.  I must send cookies I have never made before…hmmm time to get thinking.

Since I have been a bit preoccupied rehearsing, I have been doing very little innovative cooking.  I was able to whip up some soup for lunches using as few ingredients as possible since I do not have access to my spice rack.  Last week I made a pulled chicken and lentil salsa soup and this week a quinoa chicken and veggie stew.  They both turned out great so here are the results.

Pulled Chicken and Lentil and Salsa Soup
